NatureServe Canada's Annual Report 2020-2021 provides an overview of key activities and accomplishments of the NatureServe Canada Network as well as summary financial information.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, fiscal 2020-2021 proved to be a very productive year for NatureServe Canada, with a wide-range of projects that leveraged the biodiversity and information technology expertise of our membership.
Thanks to new funding from the federal government we made major advancements on priority projects including our Secure and Open Data initiative (policies and procedures to facilitate the sharing of ecologically sensitive biodiversity information); NatureServe Explorer 2.0 (the NatureServe Network’s public-facing biodiversity information platform); and our Ecosystem-based Automated Range (EBAR) mapping project.
A big thank you to our members and partners for another great year of collaboration and outcomes. Happy reading!
Patrick Henry, NatureServe Canada Executive Director
